Local Scouts find home at Mesachie Hall

Having recently made a return to Lake Cowichan after a decade of absence, the local Scouts group has now found a new home at the Mesachie Lake Hall.

The group recently made an agreement with Cowichan Lake Recreation, allowing them to use the hall rent-free from September to January 1, 2016. Following this they will be required to pay a monthly rental fee to continue using the hall.

The original Scout Hall was torn down after the Scouts were inactive for several years.
